snf-weekly-ratings-dec-27-15

Original programming was all but nonexistent during Christmas week, so even a down week for “Sunday Night Football” put it on top of the weekly rankings.

NBC’s telecast drew a 5.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 17.87 million viewers, both among the lowest of the season for “SNF.” It was still far and away the No. 1 show in both measures. The top non-sports shows in adults 18-49 were reruns of “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Simpsons” (each 1.8), while an “NCIS” repeat (10.8) million was tops among entertainment programming in viewers.
